Version 3.1.10 has a trace call in initCharset method of com.mysql.jdbc.SingleByteCharsetConverter printing exclamation marks to System.out if charset is utf8.

-- Ilkka

How to repeat:
See the source line 105.

Suggested fix:
Remove the println call.

public static SingleByteCharsetConverter initCharset(String javaEncodingName)
    throws UnsupportedEncodingException, SQLException {

    if ("utf8".equals(javaEncodingName)) {

I'm seeing this as well, sure does load up a log file unnecessarily....  Is there an eta on a new release that fixes this issue? Should I just build a copy from source with that println statement commented out?

Nightly builds have had this fixed for quite some time, see http://downloads.mysql.com/snapshots.php#connector-j
